Engagemnt Party: The energy in the house was incredible and King Kruk knows how to work his audience, especially the ladies! He had them laughing, smiling and clapping, from 7 months to 80+YO. The way King Kruk shows up as a DJ and sets up his equipment is golden. Our daughter started asking what was going on, we told her Karaoke and she was horrified. She began to leave but we insisted she stay for a few minutes, King Kruk started his intro music from a remote area and when he entered it was "priceless" I don't think my daughter or her fiance stopped grining. HIGHLY Recommended, Very Professional and Personable. Thank you King Kruk, from your fans in Simi Valley.

James was very accomadating prior to his appearance. Besides being a talented entertainer he was a really nice person to work with. He definitely held the crowd's attention and worked with the direction the birthday girl lead him, adapting to the crowd and their responses. I would not hesistate to hire him again. He really made the party!
